This is going to be the first summer I experience living in Miami Beach, and to say that I’m not ready is an understatement. Luckily my good friends over at Modern Athletic Health and I were given some new underwear to try out and experience from Sheath Underwear. I have to admit, I think they are all the same really except for the materials used, what’s the difference you know?
This new underwear design from Sheath Underwear is not revolutionary but makes total sense. I’m not even sure why it hasn’t been done before from all the various fashion houses? What makes Sheath different is the design with a unique interior ‘Zen Pouch’, Sheath underwear separates your package from your inner thighs, thus eliminating skin to skin contact, and therefore minimizing chafe and reducing the temperature of your package. The pouch underwear brand combines functionality, style, quality, and comfort, for the active guy. Having these in Miami is going to make total fucking sense. The humidity alone is ridiculous.
The underwear brand has been working for over 4 years to develop the best product possible and I have to say these are the best underwear I’ve ever owned. A little history on the brand. In 2008, Sergeant Robert Patton was serving our country in the arid, hot heat of the Iraqi Desert. As the days ticked on, the fiery weather became a constant companion for his unit. Luckily, the heat was manageable thanks to a cooling system generator the boys would use to cool themselves off. However, one day, the service was interrupted and the system went down for a few hours. During this time, in the unrelenting heat, Robert Patton thought about his situation in length. Every day, he wore a heavy army uniform with an Army-issued cotton underwear brief which slowly started to sag with time and absorb his sweat which only added to his discomfort. The only thing that he could think of doing to alleviate his irritation was to strategically place a hand towel underneath the crotch to introduce drying properties to his underwear. This tactic was useful because it helped isolate his package from his legs, but he wanted more. He wondered about the existence of an underwear pair that could effectively manage to support men’s packages with an anatomical isolation pouch and provide incredible comfort.
After extensive research and shopping at many underwear brands, he found zero results. To Robert, it seemed like nonsense. How was it possible that men all over the world had to still deal with this inconvenient underwear problem? He thought more and more about a pair of underwear with body-conforming properties that would provide dependable protection and performance throughout the day. It wasn’t until he went back home that his friends and family excitedly supported the idea which pushed Robert to move forward with his vision. He took it upon himself to create the product he wanted to wear. He went to the tailor with pre-bought boxer briefs along with additional fabric to have pouched sewn directly into the garment. The rest is history. Today, he is the founder of SHEATH Underwear.
I personally used this pair for my first tactical training session at Tactop USA this past weekend. I not once needed to adjust or have any chaffing. Usually, when I’m going to a fitness class or boot camp I wear a jockstrap just to keep everything tight and not move around. After boxing with the class, I had a one on one with a student and was so thankful Sheath put in an elastic pouch. I wasn’t thinking and she almost kicked me in the balls. It was funny after but during the session I freaked out and was thinking my babies are done for.
I recommend you get yourself a pair if you live in any part of the country that has intense summer heats during the summer. You’re going to be doing yourself a huge favor. You might not ever go back to regular underwear ever again.
